Producer Reveals Ms. Marvel’s MCU Introduction Has Been Planned For Years

Posted 2022/05/12 2 0

While Ms. Marvel’s arrival on Disney+ seems to have been a short time coming, Marvel Studios have been planning it for years.

While there are still people who believe that Marvel Studios slams together plans for their upcoming movies and TV shows on a whim, Ms. Marvel producer and co-creator Sana Amanat has revealed that the first Muslim superhero’s MCU debut has been on the cards for a very long time. With the series set to make its debut on Disney+ in less than a month, there are many fans excited to see Kamala Kahn and her superhuman abilities brought to life as part of the MCU. Unlike Moon Knight, we know this series will have at least one solid tie to the rest of the MCU.

Ms. Marvel brings 16-year-old Kamala Kahn into the MCU as a young teenager obsessed with Captain Marvel. As an ordinary girl, she struggles to find her place in life, but thanks to an encounter with an ancient artifact, Kahn develops some pretty spectacular powers that will see her become just like the heroes she has idolized for so long. While the show will act as the character’s origin story, we already know that Iman Vellani will be reprising the role again in The Marvels next year alongside Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.

Speaking in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly ahead of Ms. Marvel’s arrival, Amanat explained that Kevin Feige has been planning to bring Kamala Kahn’s story to the MCU narrative for many years. He said:

“It was definitely years ago. There has always been buzz. I know Kevin [Feige] was really excited to try to bring this to life. I think at this point it’s been four or five years since we were officially going to adapt it. But it was exciting, and we were very happy to know that not only would it be adapted, but it would be adapted into a live-action series, which is what I had always hoped. I feel like this is a series because there’s so much world and community.”

Ms. Marvel Has Made Some Significant Changes to its Titular Character’s Powers

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige recently sat down to explain the reason that Kamala Kahn’s Ms. Marvel powers in the TV series are not exactly the same as those in the comic books, and it all comes down to differences in the world of the MCU that would make her original origin impossible to explain away. Feige recently said:

“We adapt the comics; it’s not an exact translation. [Kamala] came about in a very specific time within the comic-book continuity. She is now coming into a very specific time within the MCU continuity. And those two things didn’t match. What we will learn about where those powers come from, and how they come about, is specific to the MCU. You will see great comic splash panels in some of our action sequences. If you want big, giant hands and arms, well they’re here in spirit, if not in stretchy, plastic-type ways.”

The original source of Ms. Marvel’s powers were linked to Inhuman DNA, but as the Inhuman’s involvement in the MCU has been negligible, it would not have made sense to reference them in such a big way. Changing her story to incorporate a mystery artifact – because the MCU just doesn’t have enough of those – as the source of her power at least fits with the universe and creates a unique version of the character just for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
